DETAILED DESCRIPTION

ABOUT NUR AL-'UYUN:
Great historical personalities are inevitably popular subjects for biography and cursory glance at a list of biographies composed about the Prophet Muhammad SAW will confirm him, by universal consensus, as the greatest personality of all time. He is – by any standard – the most perfect example of mankind in every aspect: the Trustworthy Messenger to whom Allah entrusted His final Revelation and the model Muslims are commanded to follow and obey.

While other biographical literature varies widely in terms of authorship, authenticity, length, breadth of detail and historical, cultural and religious perspective, this work attempts to assimilate the most beneficial aspects of all these features. At once concise and comprehensive, it relies heavily on rigorously authenticated (sahih) and fully referenced sources, and is brimming with knowledge that ‘delights the soul and adorns the pages’.

The Imam abridged this work from his previous and larger text titled 'Uyun al-Athar fi Funun al-Maghazi wa'l Shama'il wa'l Sir; (عيون الأثر في فنون المغازي والشمائل والسير).

ABOUT IMAM MUHAMMAD IBN SAYYID AL-NAS AL-YA'MARI:
Muhammad b. Muhammad al-Ya'mari, better known as Fath al-Din Ibn Sayyid al-Nās, was an Egyptian theologian who specialized in the field of Hadith. He was well known for his biography of the Prophet .

Although Ibn Sayyid al-Nas was himself an Egyptian, he was descended from a Muslim Andalusian family from Seville. The family fled due to hostility from Christians, who eventually took the city in 1248. His grandfather Abu Bakr Muhammad bin Ahmad was born in 1200 and settled in Tunis, where Ibn Sayyid al-Nas' father was born in October 1247. His grandfather died in 1261.

Ibn Sayyid al-Nas' biography of the prophet Muhammad is well known. Some of the isnads, or chains of narration establishing the historicity of claims, are unique; Ibn Hisham, arguably the most respected classical biographer, included events in his version of the prophetic biography whose chains of narration are only available in Ibn Sayyid al-Nas' work.

During his time, he was also considered one of Cairo's greatest composers of poetry in praise of the Prophet. Ibn Sayyid al-Nas along with Abu Hayyan al-Gharnati were often the presiding "judges" during poetic contests during the reign of Mamluk sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad. Slimane of Morocco, the sultan of Morocco in the early 1800s who greatly restricted the acceptable reading material in his sultanate, designated Ibn Sayyid al-Nas' prophetic biography as one of only two approved works.

Ibn Sayyid al-Nas was respected among hadith circles for his transmissions of a recension of Sahih al-Bukhari, the most significant collection of prophetic tradition in Sunni Islam. In regard to the widely reported raid of Hudhayl, Ibn Sayyid al-Nas' transmission is nearly identical to the narrations of Muhammad al-Bukhari himself, save seven small differences, six copyist errors and one difference in a single word.

SOME OF HIS POPULAR WORKS INCLUDE:

--- 'Uyun al-Athar fi Funun al-Maghazi wa'l Shama'il wa'l Sir;
(
عيون الأثر في فنون المغازي والشمائل والسير)

--- Nur al-'Uyun fi Talkhis Sirah al-Amin al-Ma'mun; an abridgement of his 'Uyun al-Athar
(

--- al-Maqalat al-'Iliyyat fi Karamat al-Sahabah al-Jaliyyat;
(

--- al-Nafh al-Shadhi fi Sharh Jami' al-Tirmidhi;
(

--- Minh al-Madhi;
